GNU, GPL, Open Source The Dutch LinuxMagazine translated an interview (direct PDF link) from their magazine with Gianugo Rabellino, Senior Director Open Source Communities at Microsoft into English. Many of your readers are probably wondering, is Microsoft really involved in open source these days, or is there more to it? Fabrice Mous started his conversation with Mr. Rabellino to get to know him better, but also to ask him some pressing questions about Microsoft's policies towards open source and open standards. It turned out to be an interesting, but certainly quite critical conversation, that will probably lead to some discussion.

We would very much like to hear your opinion on the open source policy of Microsoft.

it most definitely _IS_ crippled.

Though probably usable for small student projects which is obviously the intent.

- No OpenMP support
- No building from the command line (misses tool to build a project from the command line).
- Binary incompatible when linking with debug builds of libs built in commercial MSVC. - caused me much lost time to figure this out.
